  • Betting rules
    Definitions:

    Match - A game or a series of games played between two teams.

    Game - A singular game within a match.

    Defwin - A team cannot play a match due to their own reasoning, or the tournament admins the allocated win, due to their own reasoning.

    Forfeit (ff) - A team that choses not to play the remaining game(s) - for whatever reason.


    Rules:
    1. By placing bets on dota2lounge.com, you automatically agree with our rules and regulations.
    2. With regards to the value of your items: each value is determined by the dota2lounge.com system based on Steam Community Market prices. If you don't agree with the value that is given to your item(s) either place a different item, or don't bet at all.
    3. By placing a bet on Dota2Lounge you are confirming that you are in abidance with your country's laws which allow you to participate in item-betting. This is generally 18 years of age or older, but make sure to check.
      • If we have any questions regarding your age, we have the right to freeze your account and ask you for documents to confirm your age.
    4. Values are updated automatically (daily) at our discretion and can be updated without warning - which may occur during active bets.
    5. In some cases, if your potential reward value is very low, (generally below 0.1) there is a small chance you may not win something, besides your initial items.
      In addition to this rule: in some cases, where the odds are highly in favour of one team and you bet on the favoured team, you may end up without any winnings at all. Reason being: more people bet on the winning team than the total amount of items lost. In these cases, potential reward values become irrelevant. It all depends on the total amount of items placed on the match.
    6. We are not responsible for the name tags,desc. tags, sockets or gems attached to your items. So, please keep in mind the item you bet, may not be the same one that is returned to you.
    7. Each user can make a minimun bet of 1 item and a maximum bet of 6 items. Regardless of the rarirty of the item(s).
    8. Betting closes 5 minutes before the start of every match.
    9. You can change the team for which you bet until 5 minutes before the start of the match.
    10. If the match format is best of 2 (BO2) and the result is: 1-1 - all items are returned to thier owners.
    11. If a match has been postponed for more than 48 hours the bet may be closed and all items will then be returned to their owners.
    12. However, if a match has been postponed for less than 48 hours the bet may be locked and items will then be kept until the end of the match.
    13. If a game (within a match) has been postponed for more than 36 hours - the bet may be closed and the items will then be returned to their owners.
    14. However, if a game (within a match) has been postponed for less than 36 hours the bet may be locked until the match has finished. (So, potentially, your items can be locked in the bet for up to 36 hours)
    15. If the first game of the series is won by defwin/forfeit the bet will be closed and all items will be returned to their owners.
    16. If one of the teams in a match cannot play the match (and, the other team gets a default win). The bet will be closed and all items will be returned to their owners.
    17. However, if a team forfeits the match:
      In a Best of 2 / Best of 3, if at least 1 game is played and won by *team A* and *team B* forfeits the remaning matches, the bet will remain.
      In a Best of 5, if at least 2 games are played and won by *team A* and *team B* forfeits the remaing matches, the bet will remain.
      If, in the case *team A* win 1 game (in Best of 3) or 2 games (in Best of 5) and then proceed to forfeit the remaining games, the bet will be closed.
    18. In almost every case, if a team is allocated a defwin, for whatever reason, the match may be closed.
    19. If tournament admins give a default win to the other team due rules being broken. The bet will be closed and all items will be returned to their owners.
    20. Regardless of standins or roster changes, all bets should stay open. We provide the scheduled games at their scheduled times, not the team information.
    21. It is up to you to do the necessary research prior to betting on a team. This also includes game format changes, for example: if a Best of 3 game becomes a Best of 1 game - the bet will remain.
    22. If tournament admins announce a team change after users have bet the bet will be closed and all items will be returned to their owners.
    23. In the case of a 2 Games Series, best of 3 or best of 5: if at least one game is played and the remaining game(s) are postponed, due to DDoS/connection issues, the bets will be locked until the game(s) has been played out. However, if the postponed date is set to more than 7 days from the initial date we may end up closing the match and returning the items.
    24. You have 60 days to claim your items/winnings from your returns. After which, these items will be claimed by Dota2 Lounge and used for giveaways, promotions and, in some cases, added to winnings of future bets.
    25. These are the basic rules to which we operate, however, we reserve the right to change these rules at anytime without warning.
    26. Bet at your own risk.
    27. Always carry a tp.

    28. We feel these rules are fair for all parties involved, but if you have a suggestion, please feel free to post on our forums.
